Capturing the nuances of an authentic -get your hands dirty- roadside bbq joint on a brand new cruise ship was perhaps DADO’s biggest challenge and opportunity to do something truly special. 

Studio DADO set forth to create one of the most exciting new spaces aboard Encore with the goal of creating a guest experience unlike any other at sea. The casual space has raw, textured and deconstructed elements which lend to the authentic feel and aim to engage the senses. Selecting materials that look reused or reclaimed such as natural brick, barn siding, corrugated tin on the walls, and metal crates on the ceiling helped to create a feeling that the space came together over time.
